Blazing fast, John. It's much appreciated.

I thought you were doing translations of the installer?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

... Simeon told me that on systems without utf fonts the installer was blank.
Thats why the last versions of the translated installer had the en strings too,

You`ll get the German strings on a German System and the en strings on other systems.

If You have another solution I'll be happy to use it with the next installers.

By the way ... all Apps will be ready in German packaes too next week.
The German App pages are ready too.
